WATCH: ISIS Releases Video of Burning 2 Caged Turkish Soldiers to Death in English

The Islamic State purportedly released the previously released “The Shield of the Cross” in English. In the video, 2 soldiers with Turkey are forced to crawl on all fours before being burned alive. The video was originally released on December 22 in Arabic after Aleppo had been recaptured by Syrian government forces, backed by Russia.

BNO News reported that its release caused Turkey to shut down social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

The video came from the ISIS-controlled Syrian city of Al-Bab, which it uses as a command point for raids on eastern Aleppo, a mere 15-minute drive away. Turkey is currently trying to take Al-Bab, with Reuters reporting that “Turkish air strikes on Wednesday destroyed 67 Islamic State targets” in the city.

The ISIS video centers on Turkish airstrikes and civilians in Al-Bab allegedly killed by them.

The video begins with a brief about Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s involvement in Syria with Assad, Putin, and Obama. Turkey officially entered the Syrian Civil War in August. In November, Erdogan stated that Turkish entry in Syria was to end Assad rule, but he has since retracted that statement, according to Hurriyet Daily News.

Turkey is also using its involvement in Syria as a proxy war with the Kurdish Federation of Northern Syria – Rojava, which it views as a terorrist organization, according to Middle East Eye.

Later in the video, footage of alleged Turkish airstrikes in Al-Bab and ISIS-conducted suicide bombings are shown. The video includes footage of civilian casualties of alleged Turkish airstrikes in Al-Bab. Civilian casualties of Turkish airstrikes have been confirmed in the past, according to Human Rights Watch.

In the execution portion of the 19-minute video, two Turkish soldiers are shown in a cage with collars around their necks. In the video, ISIS calls them “dogs.”

The insult is especially meaningful in Islamic thought, as dogs are seen unclean and impure in Islam, according to Animals in Islam.

As the men are led out of the cages on all fours and lit on fire, the Arabic text reads:

You burned the Muslims, O Government of Turkey. So this will be your fate with the permission of Allah.

The video is reminiscent of the burning of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh in 2015, which can be viewed on Fox News here.

The BBC reports, “The Turkish army previously reported losing contact with two soldiers in northern Syria last month but it is unclear whether either are the men in the video.”

The video identifies the first executed prisoner as Fathi Shahin, 26 years old, from Konya. He is stated to be a border guard intelligence officer. The second man is identified as Saftar Tash, 21, a border guard.

Amaq News, ISIS’ press “agency,” previously reported on November 29 that they had captured two Turkish soldiers.

These videos look awfully fake look at 13:36, looks like actors where hired to play these parts, who smiles like that when he’s about to be burned to death? It looks so fake when they’re being burned like actors who where hired for this. The fire effects look straight out of software manipulated graphics. The Islamic state follows the laws of the Qur’an to the word and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) specifically forbade punishing someone in this world with the punishment that Allah (God) will punish humans in the hereafter and that is burning them in hell; therefore it is forbidden to burn someone in this world in Islam. I would strongly urge readers to watch these videos before believing in these false news:

Technique on how to film actors being burned by fire:

Create fire effect on software:

Staged videos of beheading:

Seems like heavy.com has an agenda to spread propaganda. Seems like everyone of their article coming remotely to Islam is about spreading mischief, bigotry, and hate amongst the people and create fear amongst the masses.

The US government would probably bomb anyone before they even made it to Syria lol. Ironic how the Islamic state is accused of suicide bombing yet most of the bombing have been done by the Coalition (what 50 000 bombs on ISIS or something) and most of the suicides have been committed by the US and British army men.

Volume 1, Book 11, Number 626:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr [pre-dawn] and the ‘Isha'[evening] prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl.”The Prophet added, “Certainly I decided to order the Mu’adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama[second call to prayer] and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses.”

Volume 1, Book 11, Number 617:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said,“By Him in Whose Hand my soul is I was about to order for collecting fire-wood (fuel) and then order someone to pronounce the Adhan [summons]for the prayer and then order someone to lead the prayer then I would go from behind and burn the houses of men who did not present themselves for the (compulsory congregational) prayer. By Him, in Whose Hands my soul is, if anyone of them had known that he would get a bone covered with good meat or two (small) pieces of meat present in between two ribs, he would have turned up for the ‘Isha’ prayer.’[fifth of the five daily prayers]

Different faiths in the world. Mist blind faith. Islam radicals, barbaric. Let’s hope the Christians and Buddhists etc, don’t interpret their religion, as the jihadis do, or the world is screwed.

And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man. “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.

1 Timothy 3:3

Why did the prophet not burn the houses then after making that statement?
The hadiths is showing the importance of salah and explaining the fact that if you don’t pray you will burn in the fire of hell not in the world!!!!
